Country Lore: a "Bounce"-y Mouse Repellent

An Ohio family has discovered a specific brand of dryer sheet does more than prevent static cling, it makes an excellent mouse repellant too.

| October/November 2010

We were having trouble with a mouse infestation in our camper. We placed Bounce regular scent dryer sheets in the drawers and cabinets. All the mice left quickly.

We tried generic brand dryer sheets, but they didn’t work — no mouse repellent effect whatsoever.
